Discover the Magic of Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil Benefits

While some ingredients in skincare products enjoy a high profile, rosehip oil is often overlooked. The reality is that this amazing oil is packed with active ingredients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C and essential fatty acids that are proven to have a positive impact on skin health.

Read on to discover why rosehip oil is the understated addition to products that can pack a powerful health and beauty punch!

Where does rosehip oil come from?

Rosehip oil is obtained from certain species of rose bush. Unlike rose oil, that's distilled from rose petals, rosehip oil comes from the seeds and fruit of the bush. These parts of the rose plant are crushed, allowing the oil to be extracted. A powerful blend of vitamins and essential fatty acids, it's particularly high in Vitamin C, E and A. With a distinguished history of use as a beauty aid, the oil has also been traditionally employed as a tonic and dietary supplement due to its high nutritional value.

Rosehip Oil Origins

What benefits can rosehip oil bring to skin?

Rosehip oil has been credited with offering a range of different advantages when used in skin care preparations. Some of these include:

  • Reducing the appearance of unwanted liver spots and other unsightly blemishes.
  • Helping to hydrate and moisturise the skin. The high concentration of fatty acids helps to strengthen cell walls, trapping moisture in the skin. The oil also moisturises, increasing the oil content of desiccated skin cells. This makes it perfect for treating itchy, dry, red or inflamed skin, as well as maintaining healthy skin in good condition.
  • Some of the vitamins which it contains can help to protect the skin from the damaging effects of sunlight.
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, including stretch marks. The combination of fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants in rosehip oil makes it a powerful anti-ageing weapon! Studies have shown that the visibility of wrinkles is noticeably reduced with the use of rosehip oil.

And how can we use it to achieve better, brighter skin?

Over-use of synthetic and processed products can affect our health and wellbeing. Many people are aware of the benefits of eating organic food that hasn't been treated with harsh pesticides, but did you know that it's equally as important to make sure that the products you put on your body are just as healthy as the food you put into it?

Don't ask me why, but I started searching the health benefits of singing in the shower and it turns out there are quite a few. So here are our favourite reasons to sing in the shower

First of all we want to stress that you DO NOT have to be a good singer, goodness knows I’m not.

 

Singing makes you happy by releasing endorphins - put on a few songs you love, even if you’re not in the mood, your favourite songs should get you singing and get you pumped for the day. Or help you relax at the end of a long day.
